A fat in a liquid form will not slow the absorption of protein.
Care to post a source or some info regarding the truth or lack thereof of this statement?
I’m serious…I’ve never heard this.
Delay in the digestion due to fats comes from:
When food is in a solid state (think steak), it’s delayed by the breakdown of the bolus (almost like a solid state) into chyme(sp?) (semi liquid state).
The emulsification of a saturated fat or transfatty acid in the small intestine. Even then, at this point the absortion of amino’s has already taken place.
With a shake (like oil or peanut butter mixed with a liquid protein), this process is already complete so that delay is almost nonexistant. You cant compare red meat (fats) to oils. So, when your fat amount is about 15grams (like 1 tbls of olive oil) the delay in amino acid absortion is virtually non-existant. It’s virtually in a pre-digested state.
It’s whole food where fat delays digestion the most. Even then, the actual absortion of nutrients (amino’s specifically) isn’t altered that much. The process of breaking down whole foods and trasnfering them to the lower part of the stomach and into the small intestine is a much slower process because of its makeup.
Lipid molecules do take longer to be metabolized, but (as above) it doesn’t effect the absoprtion of the amino’s. Only in a soild food state.
Is this lack thereof enough?
I ask for a source. Not your thought process.
I don’t really disagree with your thought process. But I’m still interested in a source. Something scientific…
Theories don’t always turn out in application you know.
Haha, are you serious? This isn’t theory. This is human biology. Pick-up a college text on biology and anything that has ‘human metabolism’ in the title. My text books are long gone so you have to do the foot work yourself.
I provided you with information on the digestion process. This is fact. All you need to do is validate this on your own. When you do, this would conclusively demonstrate that I am right. No?
How can this be disagreed with? If you dont know how food is digested, then how can maintain or even think that oil slows the absorption of protein? Where did you learn that oil slows down protein absorption? This is important, because I need to know where you are coming from with this.
